Salaam Bombay! by Mira Nair( Visual )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in Hindi and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a sympathetic study of poverty on the streets of Bombay from the point of view of an 11 year old boy who becomes implicated in Bombay's drug trade and prostitution. In the light of the film's success in Western art cinemas a recent critique has raised questions about Salaam Bombay's implied eurocentrism which presents third world urban poverty as 'other' so feeding western misconceptions. Paradoxically this arises from the failure of the filmmakers to address the nuances of cultural superficiality and hence the complex social and political conditions. Bombay is by implication presented as interchangeable with any Third world city thus setting up a rigid opposition between Third World poverty and the First World when in reality there is an interdependent network of exploitation involving the drug trade, the commodification of women and the First World's own urban crisis
